(though I tried to keep it pretty vague):
I wasn't really blown away by this episode. I liked a lot of it, but the fire alarm scene was not well done - way too convenient/contrived, especially since that was 2 seasons in the making. But at the same time it's good that that is out of the way now, because this show really isn't about people finding things out, it's more about how their motivations and reactions to events - in my opinion. I liked Don's less-than-subtle way to tell Sal both to be more discreet and that Don was not likely to say anything to anyone.
Also, I'm not sure how I felt about the play-like first scene and how Don was daydreaming events he did not experience.
I did like how easily Don was able to create a scene for Betty and later inhabit a different persona for the stewardess, but could not recall the circumstances of his daughters birth.
